WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock is being traded to the Seahawks.

Lock is a part of the deal for Denver to acquire Russell Wilson, and it's a very intriguing landing spot for the former second-round pick as he gets a fresh start with a potential opportunity to start for Pete Carroll's squad. There are quite a few veteran options available—and Seattle will likely have a top-ten pick from the Wilson trade—but Lock getting a chance to compete for the starting job is a boost to his dynasty stock on an offense with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett.

Drew Lock (right shoulder) has returned for the Broncos.

Lock missed some time while getting checked out in the locker room, but he returned in the second quarter and promptly launched a deep ball, so he appears to be OK despite suffering the right shoulder injury earlier.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (shoulder) heads to the locker room.

The CBS broadcast reported that it’s a shoulder injury, and Brett Rypien is warming up for Denver. It’s a very tough spot as the Broncos are down to their third quarterback in a game they need to win in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. We’ll have an update if Lock returns or is ruled out.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock has been ruled out for Week 9 due to COVID-19 protocols.

Lock will be unable to back up Teddy Bridgewater today against the Cowboys. This is due to COVID-19 protocols, so perhaps Lock was just a "close-contact".

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

The Broncos activated Drew Lock from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles were also activated from Denver, as they were just close contacts and did not test positive for the virus. Theoretically, they potentially could have played last Sunday against the Saints if the Broncos did not self-report themselves to the NFL for distancing/mask violations, but that's how it's gone with the NFL this season. Lock's return will obviously be a boost for the Denver offense.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

The Broncos don’t have any eligible quarterbacks for tomorrow due to COVID-19, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Drew Lock, Brett Rypien, and Blake Bortles have all been deemed high-risk close contacts, and none will be able to play on Sunday. Denver will have to turn to an emergency quarterback, and whoever it is will be worth picking up and starting at their position for fantasy purposes similar to Taysom Hill at tight end last week (in terms of lineup, not effectiveness)—though it’s possible the team in general gets shut down by a stout New Orleans defense.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (ribs) is officially active for Week 11.

Lock is dealing with a muscle strain, but the young quarterback will push through it and play today against the Dolphins. Facing one of the league’s best defenses, Lock is not a highly-recommended fantasy option today.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (ribs) is questionable for Week 11.

The thought is that Lock will push to play against the Dolphins on Sunday, but the Broncos may ultimately hold out their young franchise quarterback. Denver kicks off in the late-afternoon window, so Lock's status might not be known until after the 1:00 PM ET games have kicked off.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (ribs) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Lock reportedly wants to play and doesn't have any broken ribs, so we expect Denver will let the young signal-caller give it a go. That said, Miami's improving defense is a tough matchup, and there are probably better options to consider for Week 11.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (ribs) is week-to-week.

Lock reportedly has severe muscle strains around his ribs despite no broken bones, and he is likely to miss Week 11. The second-year quarterback has been beat up pretty good over the past couple of games, so hopefully he can get healthy and show some more promise down the stretch. Brett Rypien will probably be under center this weekend against Miami.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (ribs) is uncertain for Week 11.

The Broncos are likely determining the extent of Lock's injury, but the issue occurred yesterday against the Raiders. Lock and the Denver offense struggled in their Week 10 loss, so perhaps the injury had something to do with it. We'll track Lock's practice status throughout the week, though a clear timeline may be available before Wednesday and the start of the practice week.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (shoulder) is practicing fully.

We'll let you know if anything changes, but it looks like Lock will be able to play this Sunday in Foxboro. The shifted bye week benefitted Lock, who only missed just two starts with his injured shoulder and will now likely get to participate in a big test against Bill Belichick's defense.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (shoulder) is questionable for Week 5.

The opponent (New England) and changed date (Monday) probably won’t have many relying on Lock this week, but his status isn’t expected to be known until inactives are announced on Monday afternoon.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (shoulder) was officially limited in today's practice.

Lock is not expected to play this Sunday against the Patriots, but getting out on the practice field even on a limited basis is a good sign. We'll let you know if Lock makes unexpected progress and is able to push to play in Week 5.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (shoulder) will miss at least two weeks, according to multiple reports.

Today's tests determined that Lock is dealing with a bad rotator cuff strain. The second-year quarterback will miss at least the next two weeks and will be re-evaluated from there, so this matches up with the previous two-to-six-week timeline. Jeff Driskel will start for Denver while Lock is out of the lineup.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock is expected to miss two-to-six weeks, according to ESPN.

The exact nature of the injury will be learned tomorrow, but Lock is dealing with a sprained AC joint. Jeff Driskel played great off the bench today will be Denver’s starter, but the skill-position players on the Broncos should all be slightly downgraded for now.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (shoulder) is out for the rest of today’s game.

Lock went down in the first quarter, and he’ll be replaced by Jeff Driskel the rest of the way. Especially since it’s the throwing shoulder, Denver may need to brace for a potential long-term absence for their young starter. An updated could be provided tonight or tomorrow.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (right shoulder) is questionable to return against the Steelers.

Lock had his arm twisted awkwardly while going down on his shoulder, and he's now out of the game for Denver. Jeff Driskel is in at quarterback for the Broncos, and we'll update you as more information becomes available on Lock's status.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock improves to 4-1 as Broncos pickup last-second win over the Raiders.

In five games to begin his career and end his rookie season, Lock completed 64.1% of his passes for 1,020 yards, seven touchdowns, and three interceptions. The Broncos may have wanted to see strong play out of Lock ahead of a stacked 2020 quarterback class, and he certainly showed enough to be viewed as the franchise guy. On a very young offense, Lock's arrow is pointing up in dynasty leagues, and he will be viewed as an upside QB2 pick in redraft leagues next year.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock improves to 2-0 as Denver rolls Houston, 38-24.

The Broncos completely dominated on Sunday, and Lock was 22-of-27 for 309 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in his first career road start. A lot of the damage was done targeting tight ends (including Noah Fant with a 4/113/1 line), and the rookie has clearly sparked Denver's entire team over the past two games. His biggest test yet will come next week in Kansas City, but Lock is playing with extreme confidence and is at least worth looking at in two-quarterback leagues.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock is expected to come off injured reserve and start for the Broncos in Week 13, according to Ian Rapoport.

Denver's second-round pick will make his NFL debut at home against the Chargers, and he should get a five-game audition down the stretch to be the starter in 2020. Lock won't be worth considering for fantasy owners this week, but if he looks good, the rookie might be a good upside play in two-quarterback leagues with a relatively easy schedule for the fantasy playoffs (@ HOU, @ KC, v DET, v OAK). Expect a lot of Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman on Sunday.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

The Broncos have placed Drew Lock (thumb) on injured reserve.

Denver now has zero quarterbacks on the active roster behind Joe Flacco, and Lock may never suit up if the team is in contention when he's eligible to return. Lock—the No. 42 pick in April's draft—has the talent to start in the league, but he needs polishing and likely wouldn't be ready until 2020 anyway.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock is dealing with a "bad" right thumb sprain.

The good news is that NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says no surgery is necessary for Lock. Consider the second-round rookie quarterback week-to-week for now, and Kevin Hogan will likely back up Joe Flacco to start the season. It would've been good for Lock to get a good amount of playing time over these final two preseason games, but he'll take mental reps in what's expected to be essentially be a redshirt year for him anyway.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

Drew Lock (right hand) is questionable to return to tonight's preseason game.

Lock went into the locker room, presumably to get X-rays. Perhaps Lock will return to action, but the Broncos are likely to play it safe with their second-round rookie quarterback. Lock played pretty well before leaving tonight's game, making some nice throws and running a two-minute drill at the end of the first half to get the team into field goal range.

Drew Lock | Seahawks QB

The Broncos have selected Missouri quarterback Drew Lock with the No. 42 pick (second round) in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The wait for Lock, who was thought to be a potential first-round pick, is over as he lands with John Elway in Denver. Lock set the SEC record for passing touchdowns in a single season in 2017 with 44, but he dipped down to 28 touchdowns during his senior season. Lock has a cannon arm with great size at six-foot-four and 228 pounds, and you can read our full scouting report on him in the link below. Joe Flacco is obviously locked in as the Broncos' starter for 2019, and the team would probably love it if Flacco plays well enough that Lock doesn't have to hit the field for at least two or three years, but we'll see. Lock is just a dynasty-league stash for fantasy purposes right now.
